Let’s All Join Snoop Dogg in Celebrating the Spirit of Thanksgiving

A Snoopsgiving in Inglewood, California.

About 1,500 turkeys have found their ways to Thanksgiving tables, with a little help from Snoop Dogg. Last Thursday, the rapper joined the mayor of Inglewood, California, in distributing hundreds and hundreds of turkeys to local families in need. It’s the second year that Snoop has participated in the Thanksgiving Turkey Giveaway.


“Inglewood, y’all know I love you,” Snoop told the crowd. “I just want to let ya'll know that I'm gonna be doing this every year.”

Snoop Dogg grew up in nearby Long Beach, California, and his production crew is based in Inglewood.

City mayor James Butts told a local NBC affiliate that Snoop also met and took photographs with about 800 event attendees. “We had a tented area for seniors to sit in, and the first thing he did was go over to take pictures with everyone there,” Butts said.

“This is a very big help for not only myself, but for about a thousand people,” attendee Xiomara Payan said.

So this Thanksgiving, let’s all be a little more like Snoop—a little more giving, a little more hardworking, and a lot more fun.

It all started when a caller asked why he felt comfortable using the term "ki*e" while discussing bigotry while using the term "N-word" when referring to a slur against African-Americans.

Prager used the discussion to make the point that people are allowed to use anti-Jewish slurs but cannot use the N-word because "the Left" controls American culture.
